As a retiree, I’m often asked what I do to fill my days. Well, for example, the other day my wife and I went into town for a little shopping. After visiting one store for about five minutes, we emerged to find a cop writing out a parking ticket.
We went right up to him and said, “Come on, how about giving a senior citizen a break?”
He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him a disgrace. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires.
My wife called him worthless, so he finished the second ticket, put it on the windshield and started writing a third. This went on for another 20 minutes or so. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.
Personally, we didn’t care. We came into town by bus.
